Fan Who Gave Birth During Metallica’s Curitiba, Brazil Concert Receives Phone Call From James Hetfield

As previously reported, a Metallica fan named Joice M. Figueiró recently made headlines after giving birth during the band‘s May 7 show in Curitiba, Brazil. Now, the woman has revealed that she has since received a phone call from frontman James Hetfield. You can find a brief clip from the seven-minute chat below:

Figueiró also further opened up about her story during an interview with The Washington Post:

“It was a mix of emotions. Since it wasn’t planned, I was scared that the medical team wouldn’t be ready. But there’s also the feeling of being able to tell people that this happened because Metallica is one of the bands we love the most.”

“I joked that his name would be James Ulrich. But really, since this name question has brought up great appeal and we haven’t registered him, we’re thinking of maybe adding a [middle] name and putting some homage in there.”

Some suggested the name “Sandman,” but Figueiró has already decided against it:

“Remember, this is the name he’ll carry throughout his whole life. He’ll get bullied with the name ‘Sandman.’ He already has enough of a story to tell.”
